Every month, PlayStation Plus subscribers look forward to seeing what free games will be available for the PS3, PS4, and PS Vita platforms. The PlayStation Plus Free Games for August 2015 have been announced, and now it is only a matter of what is available for PlayStation Plus Free games for September 2015. It is possible that soon PlayStation Plus subscribers will get to vote on them.
For August 2015 on the PlayStation 4, players will get a chance to get some AAA action as Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris. The game is the second of a Lara Croft spin-off series, the first being the 2010 release of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. It plays a little differently than some of the Tomb Raider games, with its cooperative play but there are some good puzzles.
Also available for the PlayStation 4 is Limbo. This game is a 2D side-scroller, but it has a definite dark tone to it as you play a boy trying to find his sister in a world of dark woods filled full of German expressionistic style.
There are two choices available for the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. One of them includes Sound Shapes, which is a side-scrolling game that has a musical slant to it. One of the things that have made it so popular is the downloadable content (DLC) and the user-created levels.
The other game available for all three platforms is Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones. The game is a 2D puzzle platform that is a sequel to Stealth Bastard Deluxe, and it is about a clone that escapes a test facility to find the reason behind the existence of the other clones.
For the PS3 and Vita is CastleStorm, which is described on the Steam store as "a super genre mashup of 2D physics destruction mashed with tower defense brawler". In this game, you can see castles being built room by room and take part in taking them apart.
PS3 users will be fortunate enough to get their hands on God of War: Ascension. This game is a prequel to the God of War series, a third-person action adventure game that follows Kratos as he battles his way through very dark Greek mythology.
The information of these games comes through Ubergizmo and the official Playstation blog. A recent report from Engadget states that soon PlayStation Plus subscribers could have a chance to have a say about what the free titles would be.
This has all changed with a system called Vote to Play, where PlayStation users can make their voice be heard. As it so happens, the games with the most votes will automatically be added to the upcoming month's offerings, and that in the first round of voting the runner-up will be available at a discount. So far, there isn't word of how this will work, but I'm sure some information will be made clear before September 2015.
Perhaps it will be in September 2015 when the free games that win the Vote to Play election will be made available. Until then, one can only speculate.
